Antibody Test for Coccidioidomycosis
This invention is a novel diagnostic test for coccidioidomycosis, known as valley fever. Background: Valley Fever (coccidioidomycosis) is a fungal disease that is a common cause for pneumonia due to spores that are swept through the air. The fungal infection can be identified in microscopic detection of specific cells within bodily fluids. A skin...

A Broad Spectrum Antimicrobial that Synergizes with Copper
University of Arizona researchers have developed an invention that synergizes with copper to kill and prevent further growth of a broad spectrum of pathogens (i.e both Streptococcus pneumoniae and Valley Fever with the potential to work on other pathogens). This therapy does not allow for resistance to be built by the microbes. Published paper with...
